Biography



            
“My art career began with a box of crayons and a coloring book at the age of three and I have been honing my skills ever since! Undoubtedly, there are more paintings that I want to create than I have time, but there is nothing I would rather do than work towards that impossible goal."

With the exception of a beginner course, Cindy Agan is a self-taught, internationally published artist and author. Being detail-oriented, she prefers a realistic approach to her subjects in mediums that include watercolor, pastel, fluid acrylics, gouache and oil. Her paintings of children have been best described as “in a spirit evocative of Norman Rockwell" and she has completed over 300 portrait commissions. She favors a predominately warm palette, applying numerous glazes of highly concentrated paint to achieve the intense and vibrant color characteristic of her work.
 
Cindy is the author of the art instruction book titled ‘Painting Watercolors that Sparkle with Life’ and a companion DVD, an excerpt of which is included in '10 Top Painting Tips', a DVD featuring artists from around the world.
